Zaurus line to get Sharper – SL-5600 to be released soon

by Reads (6,007)

Sharp has confirmed the release of the SL-5600 in the US, and the SL-A300 a horizontal clamshell, in Japan. Sharp’s line relies on a Linux operating system which has been trying to gain steam in the PDA market for the past year or so.

The 5600 has a number of upgrades over the prior model, the 5500. Most important is a new processor and more on board memory. Here’s a spec sheet detailing the core upgrades:

The form factor is almost identical to the 5500 with the exception of a bump on the back that houses a much larger battery. We don’t have any pictures of the back yet, but here’s a nice one of the front.

Pricing is not yet available, but all indications point to roughly $550. You can view the specs here or check Linux Devices for more details.
